No Matter Where I Go, There I am.

I have the most intense desire to travel these past few weeks. Nowhere off this island or involving planes.
I have this overwhelming urge to pack the laptop, abandon here and go there. To be more specific: anywhere.
I contacted a couple of far flung inns to no avail (I suspect the dog being a negative) and now I've made an appointment tomorrow to investigate buying a small wee hardtop trailer (or caravan which was what we called them way back in my murky childhood)to hitch to Strawbella and just beetle around this vast province to my heart's content and at minimum cost. And finish, really polish and finish, one of my novels and send it off.
I don't know where this sense of urgency is coming from. Or how long it will last. Or why I feel just getting away is the push I need to do this. But it pulses away underneath every task I'm doing at the moment, every tree I plant, every file I handle.
And the little trailer? B'y, she do be right cute altogether. I'm hoping she'll feel the same about me.
I'll keep ye posted.
